Re: Hardware scan of cards failed in sam

Your system have to be installed lpr2 in the kernel driver. To resolve this problem

1. You must include "lpr2" in the kernel dirver, and then reboot your system.

2. Login as a root.

3. check lpr2 driver is installed.
# ioscan -f -k

4. Add 'parallel printer' using sam.

Re: Hardware scan of cards failed in sam

Hi,

These OLAR operations should not be
performed on these systems until the PDC of the system is upgraded to revision 41.36.
